"Given Gandhi's Values and his vision of what constituted a truly civilized and free India, it was not surprising that he developed firm views on education. Education not only moulds the new generation, but reflects a society's fundamental assumptions about itself and the individuals which compose it. This book presents Gandhian educational thought and its pros and cons. Certainly, this book will help the readers to systematize their ideas about Gandhi's educational thought and provide them the glimpses of the original ideas and thinking about various aspects of education, which are definitely products of his creative genius."
